Volkskrant review: 5 stars for Marta & Kim

“All facets of their relationship, professional and private, are physically expressed by Marta Alstadsæter and Kim-Jomi Fischer”.  This is how the beautiful review of 10 April 2022 about Our Arms Grew Together in the Volkskrant begins, followed by a whooping 5 stars!

Of course we are very proud and therefore we would like to highlight some of the beautiful descriptions and compliments from the review:

“They physically express all facets of an intimate, familiar as well as playful and rebellious relationship – professional and private. By juggling impulses, momentum and body weight – they carry and twist each other on hips and shoulders. But also by using teasing glances, pulling away hand gestures or a naughty toe against a leg to subtly expose meaning in their motor skills, which are so inhibited for each other.”

“Here are two performers at work who are complete extensions of each other on the floor (and probably at home) yet retain their own identities.”

“It may sound fermetic but Marta & Kim are reminiscent of famous artist duos like Ulay & Marina Abramović or Yoko Ono & John Lennon, but in softer disciplines of dance and circus.”
